Tuesday: 5.5 in Pisgah w/Jimmy. Cold morning. Felt good. I hit 900 for 2013.
Wednesday: 4 at the Millennium Mile in Londonderry. 2 mile warm-up, 5:49, 1 mile cool down. I felt good today. I got out fast and hung on for a sub 6. The roads didn't beat me up like last year. Gotta be the regular road runs I've been doing -specificity! Nice racing with former athletes and current athletes today. Great day. Happy New Year!

Thursday: 4 w/Jimmy on Oxbow Rd. Nice snowy day - No School! Feeling good.
Friday: 8 w/Jimmy. Oxbow/Plain out and back. Another snow day! I got out a little before 8am and the snow had stopped. We probably got 10 inches or so. It was about 3 degrees when I went running, but I overdressed and was hot out there.
Saturday: Early am: 2 solo on roads. I headed out when it was about -10 degrees. I was excited to venture into the cold. I couldn't find my ski goggles, but I figured I would be fine without them. My eyelashes started freezing up, so I decided to keep it short. I'll have to get out this afternoon when it warms up.
mid day: 4 w/Jimmy. Oxbow out and back. It warmed up to around 10 degrees. What a gorgeous day for a run. Bright, bluebird sky against the white snow made for a perfect backdrop.
Sunday: 5 w/Jimmy in Pisgah. Another cold morning; it was 2 degrees when I hit the trails. The snowmobiles made the trails nice and runnable. My right calf felt a little twingy during the run, so I cut it a little shorter than planned.
Weekly total: 37.5
2013 YTD: 900
